It looks like there may be more drama on “The X Factor” front.

New reports state that Britney Spears bolted in anger during the show’s auditions after hearing a potential contestant cover her song “(You Drive Me) Crazy.”

According to People, when a man, who was dressed in drag as a woman, performed a cover of the song, Spears “stormed off the set” even though fans seemed to enjoy the rendition. The report states that LA Reid and Demi Lovato soon chased the pop star off the set, while Simon Cowell stayed behind.

Simon later told the singer, “I don’t think she quite understood your tribute.”

Spears apparently returned to the scene, telling the performer “I really respect the tribute. It was really nice.”

The crowd apparently didn’t respect Spears’ reaction however, with one Tweeter posting that “The entire arena just booed the hell out of Britney!!”
